Make time to spend an hour or two here while you're in Barcelona. It's a bit out of the way but not too bad if you take the bus. The monuments and massive mausoleums make it feel more like a miniature city then a cemetery....More

We took a guided tour and walked from the bottom with beautiful graves with gothic angels to the very top with modern burials. Learned a lot about history and culture. Recommended!

Best seen from the seaward side, actually from the Ronda Litoral, mix of funerary monuments and mausoleums and holes in the wall for ossuaries. It's huge. It's solemn. It's actually quite fun to see the Spanish customs of death.

A beautiful cementery built on a hill with truly monumental tombs. It is in a somewhat isolated area, although there is a direct bus from Sants train station to an avenue closeby (number 109). Be sure not to miss the Batllo and Amatller Pantheons.

Such a massive and overwhelming location. We had seen it driving in and returned to see it up close. You don't realize how huge it is until you are standing amongst all the crypts. 150,000 plots and such beautiful sculptures everywhere you look. If you...More
